One of my goals in the essay will be to "take the temperature" of complex systems science in anthropology. As an anthropological archaeologist, I'm most familiar with complex systems approaches to archaeology. I would like to cast a much wider net for my review, incorporating and synthesizing as much up-to-date information as possible about how complex systems approaches are being used (or not) in the other sub-fields: linguistic anthropology, socio-cultural anthropology, and physical anthropology. I'm particularly interesting in identifying recent scholarly work that uses the approaches of complexity science to integrate data, models, and theory that cross-cut the traditional territories of the sub-fields.
Know of something I should be aware of? Please leave a comment here or send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org). Thanks!
